What photographer doesn’t love light? And while natural light is absolutely lovely, I wanted something different for this challenge:
These images were shot during the 6th Annual Wines of Chile Awards ceremony in Santiago de Chile in January 2009. The artist is Marcelo Peña-Villegas who performs as Metahue. (See more about him and his music at Etnoelectrónico).
I have to be honest and say that it was my friend, photographer Matt Wilson, who showed me how to use this rear curtain (or second curtain) flash technique while zooming in or out. Click on his name to check out his stuff. He’s definitely the guy you want when you’re looking for something cool. You won’t find any run-of-the-mill anything over at his place!
Marcelo Peña’s Mapuche-inspired show draws on indigenous musical traditions combined with one wicked light show.
